Finding a Balance

I know it's been a while. I've been so busy lately and have yet to find a balance. How do I read so many wonderful blogs, keep up with my own, work full-time, enjoy my family, work on my house, create... Everyone seems to manage their busy lives somehow right?

As you know I started a new job a few weeks ago. Unfortunately I was deceived during the interview process and it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I enjoyed the children I was working with but there were a lot of issues with the other staff and the environment. I've been at a loss as to what to do. I wondered if it was something I should just stick out for a while. I'm not one to give up easily and thought it was terrible to quit a job only after a few weeks. The Lord never ceases to amaze me though. He's got a plan all figured out even when we don't. The very same day I was planning to put in a notice to resign at my job I was contacted about a preschool teaching position at the church we just recently started attending.

It looks like it's all going to work out for HIS glory and HIS purpose and that's what I need to focus on. I suppose that's what helps me keep a balance. How about you, how do you maintain a balance in your life?

It's important for me to create and do things that are fun. We've been busy doing all sorts of stuff to our house. Like fixing up the master bedroom.


We took the drop ceiling out and put up drywall. Then we textured and painted the ceiling. It's made such a huge difference. We are really loving our cozy room. More pictures to come soon.

Recently I also had fun refinishing a cart that was left behind by the previous owners. We've turned it into a printing station in our office/library. I'll have to share more details on the process that I used to accomplish the look.


In between projects at the house and this crazy job stuff. I got sick (insert sad face). My doctor recommended one of these:


Have you ever used one before? They really do work. It's a pretty amazing sensation I must say. I highly recommend using one.

Of course my husband and I have gotten out to do some fun stuff in-between all the madness. A few weekends back we actually went to a Garlic Festival.


It was so crowded but we really enjoyed it. I was disappointed we didn't get there early enough to try the Garlic Ice-Cream but we still got to try other garlicky delights.



This was the kind of thing where the experience was with us for days after. Do you know what I mean?   With all the free samples, fried garlic and garlic pulled pork we ate, the scent of garlic seeped from our pores.

Hope you can take some time to have some fun and do something you enjoy. Here's to finding a balance!
